A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.
New time travel series in appealing, witty, graphic novel format. Charlie follows his dog Bandit when he accidentally falls into a sinkhole transporting them to Ancient Rome. Searching for his dog Charlie is befriended by Roman boy named Cosmo he must help his new friend to win a chariot race before he can return home. The style and storyline are witty and appealing to all reading abilities. The context is educational and after the story, readers can delve into Charlie's notebook, filled with all sorts of information and sketches about ancient Rome that Charlie has collected just in case he ever goes back.
A Roman Rescue (Charlie and Bandit Adventures) by Kelly Gerrard
This is the first in a new time-travel series featuring Charlie and his dog, Bandit. In this first adventure they accidentally fall into a 'sinkhole' that transports them back to ancient Rome where there adventures begin as Charlie searches for his dog. Charlie is befriended by a young Roman named Cosmo; he must help his new friend win a chariot race before he can return home.
...from two young fans, both reluctant readers:
'I love comics and 'A Roman Rescue' is like a really good comic. It's very exciting and funny. I love how Bandit's always getting up to mischief, but best of all, I think Charlie looks a bit like me.'
Marcus, age 9
"I think "A Roman Rescue" is very good. The pictures carry you along and I couldn't stop reading it. It's really exciting and it made me laugh. Bandit is just like my dog, Bart."
Conrad, age 9
